Sorcha sat down on the hard chair in the coffee shop, feeling guilty. It was almost Christmas and her, Puja and Anu had gone shopping to buy each other a present. "Puja and Anu are sure to have got me something decent!" Sorcha moaned. "And look at me, getting them things from Poundland! It's my stupid mum! She hasn't got a job and only gave me £3 to buy Puja and Anupresents, and buy a drink." Sorcha glared at the people in the coffee shop who were looking at her and rolling their eyes. So what if she was talking to herself? They should mind their own business.
"Here's your prezzie Sorcha!" Anu said excitedly. I ripped open the pretty wrapping paper and saw a CD. Worth at least £12! "Don't forget mine!" Puja said, and thrust the parcel at me. "A beauty set and a CD! Thanks gals!" Anu and Puja smiled at me. There was silence until Anuspoke. "Well, where's our prezzies?" she asked, rather rudely. I mean, I was going to give it to them eventually! "Here..." I said, stretching my arms out to reach both the girls. Anu and Pujaglanced at each other then began to rip the paper on their presents. "Wow! A hair set!" both girls said in unison. Then Puja pulled out a tiny bit of paper from the bottom of the hair set. Uh-oh. I left the receipt in! "£1! See you, loser!"
Anu looked at me. "Well. It doesn't really matter how much it is. At least she got us something." she said to Puja.
And that's when I realised that Anu was a true friend.
